notes:i read one report that the bayer meter eb took off the full $15 when used today, so hopefully that deal is all fixed now. :)

these are the first nivea items bought on my boyfriend's card. i did what i suggested yesterday, not buying the full $15 in one transaction - because any amount over the $15 does not get added to your tally.

it doesn't really matter if you only want to do the deal once, but if you want to do it more (limit is 5, ends 5/29) it's worth doing separate transactions so that the full purchase amounts count towards the deal.
